The Omega Seamaster is one of the most well-known watches, with a long history spanning from the 1950s to the present day. From its utilitarian presence on the wrists of the British Royal Navy personnel during World War II, to its current status as James Bond's reference watch, you honestly can't go wrong with an Omega Seamaster.

This Seamaster 300 ref. 165.024 was built in 1966. The steel cases for this reference were constructed by two different manufacturers. Initially, they were produced by Huguenin Frères (HF), and then by Centrale Boîtes (CB); this example was produced by the former, as indicated by the "HF" stamp on the inside caseback.

This watch has aesthetic elements reminiscent of other legendary diving watches from the same era. It features the prized "pencil hands" as well as a black bakelite bezel comparable to the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms bezel. The black dial of this Seamaster 300 was designed with legibility in mind, without a date aperture, large tritium plots, and Arabic numerals at the cardinal points. The 41mm × 13mm steel case is large for the era, but perfect for wearing today.

This specimen is in absolutely honest and impressive condition, we can appreciate an engraving on the clasp with the initials "HK" and the text "Mexico 69" which we believe refers to the Olympic games of this year, possibly the watch was a diplomatic gift. Moreover, the beauty of the watch ranges from the uniform patina and deep matte dial, to the sharp edges on the twisted lug case and its coveted "Flat-Link" bracelet highly sought after by collectors.
